"A lot of people like snow. I find it to be an unnecessary freezing of water." - Carl Reiner

I keep a tub full of old sheets & clothespins to protect our plants from any threats of hard frost.



BOO! Are those ghosts in my garden?  No.  This is our normal protocol in SWFL when the  mercury drops below 40 degrees.  I know that  sympathy comments for my plight will not be pouring in.  It will be more like weather poker - I'll see your 37 degrees and raise you 3 feet of snow & 5 below with the wind chill factor.  That's how it goes in paradise.  Last week I was on the beach in shorts.  Today I wore a heavy fleece jacket to walk on the beach & see what the NW winds had blown in.  







One good thing about the colder NW winds blowing  - these are the kind of goodies they blow in.
